Multiple post hoc comparisons were conducted to compare mean difference between two groups. Results of both Tukey HSD and LSD tests show that the mean differences between any two groups are statistically significant (p - values < 0.01). This test further confirms that the quantitative cell replication score is distinctive and varies according to the cell replication level.
